The ETRACS UBS Bloomberg Constant Maturity Commodity Index Total Return ETN Series B are senior unsecured debt securities issued by UBS that provide exposure to potential price appreciation in the UBS Bloomberg Constant Maturity Commodity Index Total Return. The index is designed to be a diversified benchmark for commodities as an asset class. It is comprised of futures contracts on 27 components, representing 24 commodities, with up to five different maturities for each individual commodity. The overall return on the index is generated by two components: uncollateralized returns on the futures contracts comprising the index and a daily fixed-income return.
The investment seeks to replicate, net of expenses, the DJ-UBS Commodity Index Total Return Index. The index measures the collateralized returns from a basket of 19 commodity futures contracts representing the energy, precious metals, industrial metals, grains, softs and livestock sectors. In addition, the index is rebalanced once a year to ensure that no commodity sector may constitute more than 33% of the index as of the date of such rebalancing.
The investment seeks total return by providing investors with broad commodity exposure. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing in a combination of exchange-traded commodity futures contracts, exchange-traded options on commodity-related futures contracts and exchange-cleared commodity-related swaps (together, "Commodity-Linked Investments") and commodity-related equity securities ("Commodity-Related Equities"), thereby obtaining exposure to the commodities markets. It is an actively managed exchange-traded fund ("ETF") that does not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index. The fund is non-diversified.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.


FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
